First Nations People Health Checks
This health check is designed to support the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of First Nations patients of all ages.
Staying on top of your health is important. It helps to identify potential illnesses or chronic diseases before they occur. It is much easier to look at ways to prevent these things from occurring, rather than treatment.
The health check will involve a 30 minute consultation with your doctor and our practice nurse, they will record information about your health, such as your blood pressure, blood sugar levels, height and weight. You might also have a blood test or urine test.
Depending on the information you’ve provided, you might have some other tests too. It is also an opportunity to talk about the health of your family.
This health check is available for all ages and are bulked billed for all eligible patients. You can have this health check once every 9 months.
The following vaccines are available for all First Nations patients under the National Immunisation Program.
Close the gap
Prince Henry Medical Practice participates in Close the Gap programs run by Medicare for our indigenous patients. We encourage our patients who identify as First Nations People to let us know so that we can best help you manage your health.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which our practice now stands. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
